Louisiana Highway 639 (LA 639) is a state highway in Louisiana which serves St. John the Baptist Parish. It spans 0.40 miles (0.64 km) in a south to north direction.

Route description[edit]

LA 639 is a short and lightly travelled local road that begins at just north of the Union Pacific Railroad Track and continues northward to a terminus at an intersection with LA 18 (River Road). Its only major feature is the old Johnson (later renamed Carroll) Plantation, in which a few slave cabins and an overseer's house remain. In recent years, the road has not been signed from River Road or on its short routing.

Junction list[edit]

The entire highway is in Edgard, St. John the Baptist Parish.
